Technical Meeting on Nutrition in Oxford, UK (October 2014): Meeting summary

 

The first Technical Meeting on Nutrition (TMN) was convened by the ENN in Oxford from October 7th to 9th 2014 and was attended by around 120 delegates comprising country representatives, United Nations agencies, non-governmental organisations, donors, academics and independents from nutrition and other sectors. The TMN aimed to provide a forum to address specific technical, programming and policy issues relevant to nutrition in emergencies and high burden contexts, share and appraise research, discuss on-going challenges, and provide ‘space’ for informal technical exchange.

Three parallel sessions on severe acute malnutrition (SAM) allowed time for detailed discussion of important technical issues and market place sessions, a debate and lunchtime sessions provided more opportunities for participation and sharing.

Key themes and learning that emerged over the three days included:

The ENN hopes that the TMN will be established as a regular forum where technical, research, programming and policy issues related to nutrition can be discussed.
